DIALECTICAL THINKING AND THE ABILITY OF SENIOR PRESCHOOL CHILDREN TO VIEW THE POSSIBLE DEVELOPMENT OF THE SITUATION

Abstract: 

In this article we discuss the mechanisms for constructing representations of the space of possibilities based on the structural-dialectical approach. The results of empirical study show that dialectical thinking can be viewed as a mechanism in preschool children. We show the role of dialectical thinking in building possible relations, in effective prediction of the evolving situation and cyclic representations.

Key words: 

dialectical thinking, possibility, cyclic representation, contradictory situation, anticipation, space of possibilities, developmental psychology.
